Event description

Description

Join us in store as we welcome Chris Fisher, the Blind Woodturner. Chris will be demonstrating on the Axminster Hobby Series AH-1218VS lathe.

After going completely blind in 2008, Chris took up woodturning and is continually pushing himself to try new projects on his lathe. Chris hopes his demonstration will be both inspiring and entertaining, and demonstrate his philosophy that you should never give up, despite what life may throw at you.

Chris now has a popular YouTube channel and says that one of the reasons he set this up was to inspire and motivate others showing that, no matter what happens in life, it is still possible to achieve your full potential. Chris says: “It is important not only to tell people but to show them that tenacity, self-belief and passion can help overcome seemingly impossible obstacles. I love to share my passion for woodturning. It is a wonderful art form and craft, and I put a unique spin on it!”
